Ten thousand dollars a day selling lemonade at 25 cents a glass. It is the undertaking accomplished in Gladewater, Texas, by a 6 year old boy, who wanted to help the sick father.    When Randy Cox, father of three children, was diagnosed with a rare cancer three months ago, his son Drew did not give up "He is so important to me, we love playing together," he said candidly the child, now become a small star interviewed spoke on Kltv.

Saturday, Drew has in fact put a stall in the street to sell lemonade, 25 cents a glass, exposed on the poster the word "please, help my dad." At the end of the day Drew’s family counted the gains of the small: the child was able to collect the amazing sum of 10 thousand dollars to pay for medical expenses of the father.    The boy said he was not surprised at his incredible success: "I knew already that all would come."
